Verse 1

Man with no remembered past
Fast, frozen and fancy-free
Basing his life on the present
Its fads and its fopperies

Before chorus 1

Floating with the current on a raft all alone
Gone with the flow, all of history
He found a cure for the world:

Chorus

He made the world go away
He made the world go away
He made the world go away

Verse 2

A tender infant voice within
Screams at its first betrayal
Mother's black beak stabbing through time

Man with no more future-faith
Trapped like a rat in his personal space
Nonplussed by the real life that passes before his eyes

Before chorus 2

Slumped on the sticky-sweet popcorn seat
Watching movies of the world's demise
He found a cure for the world:

Chorus

He made the world go away
He made the world go away
He made the world go away

Bridge

Cataracts spread like rot, breaking the threads of sight
Colors and shapes scatter the light through your eyes

Verse 3

Hours and days flow vaguely by
Life at the top of the food chain
A gradual death to the pleasures of the flesh

Before chorus 3

Dropping pounds and dripping fat
From a decade of treatments and sauna baths
They found a cure for the world:

Chorus

They made the world go away
They made the world go away
We made the world go away

Let's make the world go away
Please make the world go away
Just make the world go away
